Dastur Ya Sayyidi Madad! Assalamu Alaykum. First of all salam from Mawlana S. Nazim (qas) to all you murids of S. Nazim. He is giving salams to everyone. By one by his name, by love & respect & praying for all of you. Alhamdulillah he is very good.InshAllah all the time he will be very good, improving day after day Alhamdulillah. Insha’Allah he is very happy also. Sitting all the time with Rasulullah (saws). Grand Shaykh, with all grand Shaykhs, Awliya’, Sahib Al Zaman – they are in Divinely Presence of Allah Almighty. For this he is happy! Like an ocean, swimming in this ocean of Rasulullah(sas). As-salamu alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. First of all we start by Audhu Billahi min ash shaytan ir rajim Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim, We ask Allah Almighty to open our hearts to this… to make us hearing this… Divinely Knowledge coming from the heart of S. Nazim (qas), Sultan of Awliya, to our hearts. And only I am listening as you are listening and translating whatever coming from the waves of the ocean of Mawlana S. Nazim Sultan of Awliya (qas) to my heart. I am translating in a very bad English. Not a very good English. What I do? This is my English not very good, everyone a little bit they understand and I am listening as you are listening. I am not a Shaykh, I am a dog at the door of Mawlana S. Nazim. G: Astaghfirullah. Sitting. Whatever he throws to us some bones, we eat from these bones. But if he throw for us from the meat from the food of Awliya Allah,which is given to Awliya Allah then we will fly. So we are at the door barking for some bones. Alhamdulillah Rabb il ‘Alamin that Allah Almighty makes us to be His servants; creates us as children of Adam(as).He didn’t create us as a donkey or animal, then what we will do? Or like a sheep or a cow they will take us & slaughter us. Alhamdulillah He Created us to be children of Adam(as) & make us servants to Him. Alhamdulillah Allah Almighty blessed us & make us to be the ummah of Rasulullah (saws), the nation of Muhammad (saws). And Allah (swt) Blessed us to be lovers & followers of Mawlana S. Nazim Sultan of Awliya’, Grand Shaykh or Grand Shaykh S. Abu Bakr Al Siddiq, Rasulullah (saws). And we are asking Allah Almighty first of all to give long life & cureness & health to Mawlana S. Nazim & make him with with us to reach the time of Sahib Al Zaman. Sayidina Muhammad Al Mahdi (as) & Sayidina Isa (as). Where at that time it will be the earth Paradise. It will be Jannat, no more earth. It will be a Paradise where all who will be at that time, Mawlana says, they will hear the voice of Allah Almighty. As Allah Almighty used to talk to S. Musa (as) Prophet Musa (as) He will talk,Allah Almighty, to all whom they are in the time of S. Al Mahdi(as) and S. Isa (as).
Even at that time Allah (swt) will take off all letters from The Holy Quran. If you open The Holy Quran, you won’t find any letters. Only you will find The Secret of The Holy Quran. The Letters of The Holy Quran they are like taps – if you open the tap, water will come.The tap is nothing only it’s instrument,tool to bring this water & like this these letters at that time of S. Al Mahdi (as) no more in need for them. Because Allah Almighty Promising Rasulullah (saws) that is going to come a time before Yawm Al Qiyama, “where I Will Make you, My Beloved Muhammad (saws), to open the secrets, this water of life of The Divinely Words & Knowledge of Allah (swt) which is endorsed on The Holy Quran because under every letter Mawlana says, there is 24,000 oceans of secrets & realities and all Awliya’ swimming in these oceans. Every letter and every letter how much it is repeated – its oceans it will be different from the other.For example Alif or “A” how much Alif is repeated in The Holy Quran, every under Alif 24000 oceans of secrets & realities. And at that time of S. Al Mahdi (as) the spirituality of Rasulullah (saws) even with his physical body will be appearing again & he is going to plant and dress the secrets of The Holy Quran, Mawlana says, in the hearts & in the soul & for everyone who will be following S. Al Mahdi (as) & S. Isa (as). Where at that time all children of Adam (as) all of them will be following S. Al Mahdi(as) & S. Isa(as). No one will be an unbeliever at that time. For 40 years they will rule & they will be all children of Adam (as) here believers. Not like nowaday we are imitated believer – believers, who only by tongue we are saying believer- Not really dressed by faith- by Iman, by the reality of Iman. At that time they will be all of them, like sahaba of Rasulullah (saws). Spiritual Sahaba of Rasulullah (saws) they will be whom they will be dressed by real Iman-faith.They will be real believers everyone of them seeing the spirituality of Rasulullah (saws). Allah Almighty saying in The Holy Quran “Fa’idha Qara’nahu Fa Attabi Qur’anahu Thumma Inna Alayna Bayanahu” (75: 18-19) If we recited, follow the reciting of S. Jibril (as), only recite! The letters, coming a time where we are going to, no more letters, we are going to make it well, shining and clear for everyone, the secrets of these letters. The water of life which will survive the hearts of children of Adam (as) at that time. And you, My Beloved Muhammad (saws), you are going to take them & to plant in their hearts & to dress them by the secret of The Holy Quran”. And for this Allah Almighty saying in another Ayat “Inna Al-Ladhi Farada Alayka Al-Qur’ana Laradduka Il√° Ma`adin”(28:85) The One who dressed – descend on you The Holy Quran – is going to return you for an appointed time before Yawm Al Qiyama. Which means the time where he will also spread the secret now of The Holy Quran. Now we are only reciting letters, at that time we will recite the secrets & realities. The Divinely Knowledge which is under the letters of The Holy Quran. And for this, the one whom Mawlana says. The one who following Awliya’ Allah (swt). The ones who following Sultan of Awliya’ Mawlana S. Nazim, and this line to grand Shaykhs, to Abu Bakr Al Siddiq (ra), they are well trained & well dressed, through Mawlana that in time of Sayidina Al Mahdi (as) they will be the first whom these secrets of The Holy Quran will be dressed in their hearts.
While the common ones, common people they will take time to be trained by S. Al Mahdi (as) to dress them Rasulullah (saws) by the secrets of The Holy Quran & by the reality of Iman. Nowadays, Mawlana S. Nazim even spiritually no need to be dressing through sohbat or in-between people. But spiritually he is training & dressing everyone of his murids of his lovers, of these ones whom they are…Allah Almighty & Rasulullah in The Day of Promises appointed for him as followers & nowadays all the ummah of Rasulullah, they are under his his training, under his teaching. And he is the one who is training them. But the ones who following him he is planting in their hearts now these seeds of the realities & secrets of the letters of The Holy Quran. At that time all of them, they will be shining! And the tree of the secrets of The Holy Quran will be growing & giving fruits. The fruits will be water of life, they will be survived by it. in the time of Sayidina Mahdi (as) & Sayidina Isa (as). And for this Mawlana says, as much as you can make yourself always to be in good manners, respecting, humble. How much you will be humble, how much Allah (swt) Will raise you up! How much Allah (swt) will dress you more by spiritualities. How much you are proud & seeing yourself important Allah Almighty will make you then out of the eye of Rasulullah (saws), out of the eye of Awliya’ Allah (swt). The one who is always seeing himself as nothing, less than a zero, even no existence for him, making only that the existence of Allah Almighty, Rasulullah (saws) Mawlana Sultan of Awliya’, he is existing in him then this one quickly he will be approaching & approaching & close to spirituality & to reality of Sultan of Awliya’, & to Awliya’ Allah (swt) & to his reality also and will be dressed by kind of lights of Divinely Knowledge & blessing from Allah Almighty & Rasulullah (saws) will open his heart. And for this Rasulullah (saws) said “the one who finds, who found in his heart, less than an atom proudness, never he will enter to Jannah, Paradise.” “who has an atom of proudness, will not enter Paradise.” (Hadith) Rasulullah (saws) saying, “if anyone less than a tiny atom which cannot be seen in his heart, never he will enter to Jannah.” Because Allah Almighty likes people whom they are humble. Humble people, whom they are always respecting Allah Almighty & seeing Allah Almighty with everyone. Allah (swt) Saying “I Am with everyone. Respect Me. This soul in view, it is My soul. This Light which you are created from, it is My Light. So respect this light, respect the soul.” And Allah Almighty saying to S.Musa (as) “I Am with you”. When he sent him to Pharaoh, He Told him “I Am with you.” And your brother hearing… seeing, “I Am with you.” Hearing, Listening to you & Seeing. Because Allah Almighty, He is with everyone. He is All in All. Everyone of us is existing by Allah Almighty. If Allah Almighty takes the secret,light from us it will be funeral, finished! They will take us to grave. And for this respect, the Light of Allah Almighty in everyone of children of Adam (as) your respect, it will go to Allah Almighty. If you serve each other serving will go to Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty telling S. Musa “by what you serve Me, S. Musa?” “O P.Musa by what you serve Me?” He told Him “I serve You, by giving messages, teaching prayers to people, like this. He told Him benefits coming to you. By what you served Me? He told Him, “i don’t know, what.
You are Allah Almighty You are serving us. By what do we serve You?” He told him If you want to serve Me serve My people, serve Children of Adam (as). Then you are serving Me. So S. Musa told Him, first to serve You, O Allah, I invite you for dinner. You come to have dinner with us, Children of Israel. He said, yes I will come, why not? I accept your invitation. For example, when You will come? I will come on Friday to be with you. S. Musa (as) before a month of this Friday was preparing with all Children of israel, a big dinner for Allah Almighty. All kinds of food. Slaughtering sheep, goats, cows. Allah coming to eat with them. He accept the invitation of S. Musa (as). Ans so, there was no house enough for all Children of Israel to sit with Allah Almighty & to eat & to drink. So they made it in the roads, they built huge tents, and huge… what you call pavilions, huge tents, huge buildings, specially for the respect of Allah Almighty & they put a dinner perhaps one kilometer. All kinds of food, all kinds of juice, everything. & all Children of israel. Between them S. Musa going coming, going coming… Noon time Allah didn’t come Friday, Asr time Allah not coming. S. Musa was so surprised. Children of Israel -food is going cold, difficult to warm it again, so what you will do? He said wait till Maghrib, perhaps Allah eats Maghrib time. S. Musa used to talk with Allah, Allah taking wisdom from him. No wisdom because he talks. One with wisdom will not ask Allah anything. Allah will not talk to him except by revelation by Jibril (as), by wahy. So Sayyidina Musa (as) was allowed to talk to Allah directly & so Allah taking wisdom from him. Who dare to talk to Allah? Everyone must respect Allah, for Sayyidina Musa (as) it is okay. And so it was Maghrib time also then all Children of Israel were very hungry, they want to eat. The food no more is hot, it is cold. Then an old, handicapped one from Children of Israel coming, What… what you are doing, why you are waiting? The food now is cold. He was sitting on one of these cushions, and started to eat, I am not going to wait, I will eat, I will eat. Then S. Musa coming, scolding him, beating & throwing him out. Go bring some water & warm it, make a fire, warm the water so if Allah wants to wash His hands before eating, He can. Instead of sitting & eating. He was blind also, old man, handicapped. The Children of Israel were giving pity to him, this old man, how Sayyidina Musa (as) in strong body was dealing with him. Was throwing him out, go bring wood, make hot water for Allah! Coming to eat. Anyone dare to start before Allah to come? Then ‘Isha was coming, midnight, morning, Fajr prayer & Allah never… Allah eats? If Allah Almighty eats food, then food will be god for Allah Almighty. Allah doesn’t eat. He is not in need for food like us, Allah created food for us. Then S. Musa (as) was so angry at Allah Almighty, that he was saying you are making me to be a liar in between Children of Israel. All of them are saying to me now, ashamed from you Musa (as), you are Prophet & asked Allah coming to eat & we prepared all this food. We spent all our money on it, Allah didn’t come. How you say so? You are lying to us. How Allah Almighty, you look? He say Ya Musa, by My Almightiness, I came, and was eating but you came & you scold Me, & you throw Me out, telling Me go pick wood, make hot water for Allah to wash His hands. Ya Musa, if you’re Prophet Musa, & saw Me with this man,handicapped who was sitting, eating then you would have realized I was there. I am with My people, I am Allah Almighty with everyone. I am with everyone of Children of Adam (as). I am so close to everyone, much more close than themselves. See Me with everyone then you will realize that I came and I was sitting to eat but you kicked me out Ya Musa (as).
Like this Allah likes the ones who see Allah Almighty with everyone, see Rasul (saws) with everyone, see Awliya’ Allah with every murid. Then they will realize the secrets & the realities of the Sufi Way, the Naqshbandi Way. Sayyidina Imam al Ghazali, Mawlana said a story about him. He was against sufism, against Awliya’. He was so much fighting with Awliya’ Allah, like Ibn Taymiyyah & Ibn al Qayyim, first of his life. He used to have a brother & his brother was an Awliya’. And so, Sayidina Imam al Ghazali was so famous scholar, ulama at that time, that the Khalif of Muslimin appointed him to pray the Juma, Friday prayer. The imam & the khutbah for the Khalif & all the ministers and people. At that time, they didn’t pray in several mosques the Khalif, all ministers, believers & Muslims at that time in Khilafah, gathered themselves, all together in a very huge place and they put a mimbar, and the Imam, Shaykh ul Islam, was S. Imam Ghazali, who made the khutbah for all & they prayed Juma. His brother Ahmed, never attending Juma prayer with him, he ran away. Then S.Imam Ghazali was complaining to his mother, O my mother, I love you, why my brother doing like this with me? Always running away from Juma prayer, not praying with Khalif, ministers. All high people, low people, all the citzens praying behind me, except my brother running, playing with small boys in the street. Making a brush, like a stick for a horse, & running in the ways, in the roads. Why? Then the mother said, O my son Ahmed, to the brother of S. Imam Ghazali, Allah bless you & I will bless you for my sake at least go once & pray behind your brother, the Juma prayer. So he said, yeah, O my mother as you are ordering I will go. Then he went & started to pray. S. Imam Ghazali after the khutbah, start to pray 2 rakats of Juma prayer. Starting, Allahu Akbar! And all the khalifs, ministers, & people saying Allahu Akbar after Sayyidina Imam Ghazali, then a big voice coming from the brother of S. Imam Ghazali. You spoiled the prayer for all of us, you are a bad one, you are not an imam! You spoiled the prayer! He ran away from between the people, pushing Khalif, ministers behind his brother directly, pushing all of them, running away from mosque. He said, you spoiled our prayer. Then S. Imam Ghazali finished the prayer, went to his mother & now he was complaining that his brother made him so embarrassed & shyful from the Khalif & from all who were praying behind him that instead to pray, to say Allahu Akbar, he said, you spoiled the prayer & he ran away. The mother called son, brother of Imam Ghazali & said, what you did? Better not to pray. Why say, yes my mother, I accept what you ordered me & went & prayed, behind him & you didn’t pray but cursed him, & said you spoiled our prayer & you ran away. He said, because just as he say ‘Allahu Akbar’ I saw he is saying not to Allah, but swimming in an ocean of blood. He was swimming in ocean of blood, saying Allahu Akbar to this ocean. He was not connected at all to Allah but his heart & mind in ocean of blood. For this I am not going to pray behind one who is not praying to Allah. He made us all to miss the prayer & for this I ran away. She called her son S. Imam al Ghazali, she told him the sory is like this: he said, you are swimming in an ocean of blood. Then S. Imam Ghazali, Allah make him to be wake up by his brother. To know about Awliya’ & sufism, & so he say, yes my mother, because just before the prayer, 4-5 big ulama from another city coming to me to make fatwa for them for the period of women. Every month how they will act, if allowed for them to recite Holy Quran, salat wa salam on Rasul (saws); fast or not fast, if it is more than 7 days. & so they were in a hurry for a fatwa. And just the prayer coming so all the khutbah & the praying I was thinking from where to collect for them the hadith of Rasulullah (saws), and what is mentioned in the 4 mazhabs about the period of women. Really I was in an ocean of blood. And for this, I know now that my brother, I know that the Awliya’ and the ones who are connected with Allah Almighty, what kind of knowledge they have which we don’t have.
So S. Imam al Ghazali left all his knowledge, all his books, all whatever he was collecting from these books of knowledge & Shariat, and then he say I want to be a sufi one & he enter into a seclusion. And he start to be in the way of Awliya’ Allah. Until he put plenty of books after this, all about Awliya’ Allah, how to be in the Way of Allah Almighty. And Shariat is a good way only to make you to reach to the Way of Allah Almighty but there is another way then you must walk on it to reach Allah, as Allah Almighty saying: “Wa Al-Ladhina Jahadu Fina Lanahdiyannahum Subulana” (29:69)
The one who struggle well in Shariat, I will open for them ways leading to Me, the Divinely Presence of Allah, and to Rasulullah (saws) & they will be divinely ones, for whom Allah saying: Ya Ayyuha Alladhina Amanu”Kunu Rabbaniyina”(3:79) Be godly ones or divinely ones, O Believers, be divinely ones related to Allah Almighty, related to Rasul (saws) where the one who reach that maqam will meet the spirituality of Rasul (saws). Meeting the spirituality of Rasul (saws) means meeting that of all prophets, all Sahaba, S. AbuBakr (ra), Ali (as), all Grandshaykhs & Awliya, you will be with them, for you S. Mahdi (as ), will already be appeared. No need to wait for him. As for Mawlana, S. Mahdi already appeared & visiting with him & sitting with him. He is not one waiting like us to reach time S. Mahdi (as) he is already reaching Mahdi (as) & Isa (as). And he is the one who is making the program for S. Mahdi & S.Isa (as) for everyday. Like this, Sultan of Awliya, Mawlana Shaykh Nazim. Like this Grandshaykh used to say about Mawlana. It is not from me, because I love Mawlana, no, Shaykh Abdullah Daghestani used to say about Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (qs). And like this S Imam al Ghazali was struggling, & struggling till he was meeting the spirituality of Rasulullah (saws), & he passed away & they buried him, & the cemetery was full with Awliya & those who passed away from Sahaba & Awliya & Prophets who used to see S. Imam al Ghazali after his death & still he is ascending, Rasul (saws) making him to ascend to Divine Presence of Allah. It is known if anyone dies, finish, nothing more is written for him. The books will be folded & the malaikah will go with the soul. But for S. Imam al Ghazali, he was still going up & up, ascending ascending as if still alive, to Divine Presence of Allah Almighty. Rasulullah (saws) making him to reach where he reached the Night Journey to be making sujud in between the hands of Allah Almighty, to reach to the Divinely assembly of Allah Almighty. Then all of them were astonished & surprised, the dead ones, & they asked, O Allah Almighty how this happened to servant Ghazali?
Allah Almighty told them guess why he reached to that maqam that he is still ascending, I want answer from you? Allah knows but He wants to teach them. So all of them say, for example, that he left his knowledge & he make dervish himself, & humble, & was in the way of Awliya’ & he was defending Awliya’ & sufi people & he was fighting the ulama who are against the Awliya. Some of them say because he was pious, because he was struggling in the Way of Allah Almighty.
Allah Almighty told them not for all this I gave him this maqam. Why I gave him this maqam, Allah Almighty informed them, O People of sa’adah, People of happiness, O Mumins, Allah Almighty telling all who are dead ones, seeing how S. Imam Ghazali was attending to Divinely Presence of Allah Almighty. Why I gave him this maqam? Allah informed them that Imam al Ghazali once was in seclusion and it was the night of Mawlid, birthday of Rasulullah (saws), night of 12th Rabiul Awwal & he was writing a fatwa according… for people who were in hurry to get fatwa from him. It was nighttime, & candle, he was writing was the ink, the fatwa, at that time they had the feather of bird, put in ink & write. And he was in his seclusion, writing, then a fly coming, & she was coming upon the feather with which he was writing & she was drinking from the ink & he was even so in hurry but he stopped so not to bother her & he say this night is birthday of Rasul (saws) & all of us Allah created for the sake of Rasulullah (saws) even this fly, also Allah creates her for the sake of Rasulullah (saws) and to kill fly is sunnah but since it is birthday of Rasul I let her drink, as a gift & mawlud to Rasul (saws). He stopped his finger, until she drink, drink, drink, after she fly. Then he started to write. For this goodness, even nothing in your eyes but for this small goodness he did, I gave him all this maqam, to ascend to Allah Almighty.
For this, Mawlana always teaches us even a small goodness dresses you by Ridwanullah Akbar. To make Allah pleased from us. And even sometimes a small badness nothing, in Shariat, it is makruh, not important, but perhaps it may make the anger of Allah Almighty come over one and kick one out of reality & spirituality. So don’t say this is a small badness, it is okay if we did it. But always repent & ask forgiveness from Allah Almighty. And even it is a small badness don’t enter into it and also don’t say that this is a very small goodness, good deeds nothing, we did it or not, perhaps it will be so high & big in the eyes of Allah Almighty, & He pleased & dress you by blessing. Even a date to give it as a donation will be pleasing Allah Almighty for one. Don’t say I have nothing, I will not give anythhing. At that time Allah looking at us & it will be very good tiding from Allah Almighty & don’t say, this smoking nothing or this badness is nothing, it is makruh, not forbidden. But perhaps it will bring the anger of Allah over the one & He may disconnect the one & make him out of reality & spirituality. And for this Allah saying in the hadith of Rasulullah (saws) la tussagghiru sayiatan wa la tuazzimu ma’mufan.
Don’t say this is small sin, it is okay, perhaps it will be very big. Tahsabuna Muhayan an wa Huwa inda Allahi Al Azim You will think that it is nothing but to Allah it will be very great. & Allah will dress you anger, & disconnect you & make you far from spirituality & Reality, and He will not send guidance to you. And don’t say these good deeds, goodness is nothing, so small, perhaps it will be very huge and great in the Divinely Presence of Allah Almighty. In the old times there was a very bad woman always sitting in pubs & with men & like this Once she returning nighttime to her house, and she saw that a dog… the dog barking, so thirsty, but not able to reach water to drink. She take off her shoes, she put water in it, & gave it to the dog. For this goodness Allah making the malaikah to erase all whatever, big badness she was doing. All whatever bad she did & since changed them to good deeds & when she died she entered Paradise by shafa’a of Rasulullah (saws), for a dog, to give him water to drink
And like this always be careful, seeing & noticing Allah with us, never to approach even a small badness and don’t say this is nothing, even a small goodness, do it! Perhaps Allah Almighty at that time opening heavens & looking at us & dress you by high maqam like S. Imam al Ghazali to be ascending even after death to the Divine Presence of Allah. May Allah forgive us & mercy us & dress us by all means of forgiveness & mercies & blessing. And make us sincere servants to Him, sincere lovers to Rasulullah (saws) followers, lovers & murids to Mawlana Grandshaykh, all Grandshaykhs & Sahib al Zaman Mahdi (as). Ila Sharaf Al Nabi…. Fatiha!
22 March 2012 – Lefke Cyprus – Mawlana Shaykh Adnan Kabbani Q
